DeepVeer to set up a production house? ‘At least I am not,’ clears Ranveer

New Delhi: A few days ago, reports doing the rounds, suggested that post their marriage Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone will be setting up a production house. The news came as a sweet surprise as it was interesting to know that the newly married couple was extending their tie-up even professionally with a joint venture.

However, Ranveer Singh cleared the air to Dainik Bhaskar saying, “I don’t know about Deepika, I can speak for myself here. I am not. I am just focusing on acting right now.” Seems Ranveer’s hinting that though not him, Deepika has plans to set up a production house.

In an interview given to a publication last year, Ranveer had shared his idea on production. He was quoted saying, “I don’t rate my business acumen very highly, so if I were to, then I want to be a creative producer. I would definitely be interested in creatively curating a project.”

Likewise, in one of her earlier media interactions, Deepika had shared her thoughts on production. She was quoted saying, “I want to venture into production and be a producer or line producer someday because I feel I have that kind of personality. I like to organise, put things together and make things happen. I don’t want to be a producer because I want to make money.”

Clearly, Deepika’s thoughts are too strong about the notion of coming up with a production house. Wonder if she will take up the task of setting up her own production house. Her contemporaries Priyanka Chopra and Anushka Sharma are known for plunging into production business in the male-dominated Bollywood industry.
